Daily Debriefing

A newly revamped Common Application will debut Aug. 1, 2013 as part of an $8-million project to accommodate the increasing volume of applications from around the world, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. At the National Association for College Admissions Counseling's annual conference on Friday, Common Application officials said that the essay prompts would likely change each year and would no longer include the "topic of your choice" option. While supporters said that the changes would level the playing field among applicants, critics said that it limits creative opportunities for students. The new Common Application, which will be available exclusively online beginning next summer, will also include more accessible progress checks, a streamlined fee waiver system and features that help counselors monitor their students' progress, and the Common Application will not allow resume attachments, according to The Chronicle.
